Oberon's gone mad. We're talking full-on Hamlet. The fairy king of Midsummer has kidnapped William Shakespeare, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Shakespearean Heroes International Evil Lessening Division) and his mischievous sidekick Puck has brought him the Infinity Quill. A quill unlike any other, for the Infinity Quill has the power to rewrite history itself and forge a new future at the will of its master.

Slightly anxious about the scenario that is unfolding, Shakespeare's greatest heroes (and Brutus), decide that they should do something to stop the oncoming apocalypse. Under instruction's from Puck they head to Midsummers Forest. Shakespeare's Avengers have assemblethed.

Having debuted at Edinburgh Fringe 2015 to good audiences and four star reviews, Shakespeare's Avengers Assembleth: Age of Oberon, is a fast-paced comedy, featuring fairies, Romans and a whole host of madness.
